Abstract

The aim of the paper is to investigate the bifurcation behavior of the power-factor-correction (PFC) boost converter under a conventional peak current-mode control. The converter is operated in continuous-conduction mode. The bifurcation analysis performed by computer simulations reveals interesting effects of variation of some chosen parameters on the stability of the converter. The results are illustrated by time-domain waveforms, discrete-time maps and parameter plots. An analytical investigation confirms the results obtained by computer simulations. Such an analysis allows convenient prediction of stability boundaries and facilitates the selection of parameter values to guarantee stable operation.
